Household electricity bills to rise because of Daniel Andrews

More independent experts have today said that Daniel Andrews’ ideological crusade against coal will mean higher electricity prices for Victorians.

Brian Morris of Schneider Electric in Australia is reported today warning that the likely consequence of Hazelwood’s closure will be upward pressure on wholesale electricity prices.

Thousands of people in the Latrobe Valley are also going to lose their jobs because of the Andrews Government’s obsession with closing Hazelwood and they are getting nothing more out of Daniel Andrews than ‘goodbye and good luck’.

Daniel Andrews is more interested in waging an ideological crusade against coal than he is in the jobs of Victorians and affordable and reliable electricity for the state.
